Flyers pick up Timander from Islanders
The Islanders received a seventh-round pick in this year's draft, a selection the Flyers previously picked up in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Philadelphia, which lost four defensemen in the past week, made its second trade in three days to fill holes on the back line. The Flyers reluctantly dealt promising young forward Justin Williams to Carolina for Danny Markov on Tuesday.
Timander, 29, has spent most of the season with Bridgeport of the AHL. In five games with the Islanders, he had one goal and one assist.
The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Timander has 12 goals and 65 points in 385 NHL games over eight seasons with Boston, Columbus and the Islanders. He had two goals and six assists with Bridgeport.
